This is a primer on the subject of how a bronze monument is physically made, starting from a rough sketch and ending with the installation of a finished sculpture in a public place, using the St. Augustine Foot Soldiers Monument as an example. It's about 8 minutes long.

THE LARGER PICTURE This movie merely documents the construction of the monument. The members of the Commissioning Agency, the donors, the city officials and most of all - the Foot Soldiers - are not named herein for purposes of brevity. Without them, this monument would not exist. For more information, search for "St. Augustine Foot Soldiers Monument" on Wikipedia.
